I-64 Bridge Closure

The Sherman Minton Renewal project team advises of the immediate closure of the Sherman Minton bridge in both the east and westbound directions—top and bottom decks—until further notice.

During scheduled deck pour operations, a component of the bridge deck on the main span was found to need immediate inspection and possible repair before traffic can be permitted to cross the bridge. This closure will remain in effect until further notice.

Please use alternate routes and designated detours. The suggested alternate route is I-265 and I-65. Regional traffic signs and variable message boards will be posted in the project area, notifying motorists of the closure and alternate route.

Additional updates will be provided as they become available.
